Syride Xmas 2014 contest winner: Darren Shepherd

Flybubble customer Darren Shepherd was one of the lucky winners of Syride Xmas 2014 contest, winning a Syride SYS'Nav all-in-one flight instrument, worth £325!

Darren was so pleased that he 'popped over' to Flybubble collect his prize (4+ hours drive each way!) and bought a few more goodies whilst he was here.

Afterwards he wrote: "Many thanks to Flybubble Paragliding, not just for the great cup of tea with biscuits but also for being able to kit me out with the latest top quality high end equipment, and for presenting me with my prize from Syride, a shiny new SYS'Nav, and not forgetting the few freebies they have on offer while stocks last so grab them while you can. A very happy chappy. Thank you Carlo Borsattino and Nancy Elliott."

Thank you Darren, enjoy all your fab new kit!

Safety Notice: Skywalk MASALA2

Skywalk have issued an urgent safety notice regarding all sizes of their ultra-lightweight paraglider, MASALA2.

When reverse launching a Skywalk Masala 2, a pilot had the rear riser (C / D) tear at the stitching with the B-riser. The pilot managed to abort take-off, and was unhurt.

Skywalk's investigation with the DHV has found that if enough force is applied in the opposing direction to normal flight then failure could occur.

All Skywalk MASALA2s must be checked by the manufacturer and must not be flown before then.

For more information, see the original safety notice in German here.

SHGC 2014 XC Season Roundup

And so another year - and another SHGC flying season - comes to a wintry end. But what kind of year was it for SHGC pilots for cross country (XC) flying, both from SHGC sites and all around the UK? Were lots of XC flights done? Were new PBs made, and any records broken? New routes taken? Who won the Sussex, Martini and Novice leagues? Who was top lady? Best newcomer? Most improved? And did anyone blow the socks off everyone enough to warrant the coveted Outstanding Achievement award?

All of this, and much more, was revealed at the excellent SHGC Xmas Dinner Party & Awards Ceremony, which was superbly organised by our new SHGC social secretary, Simon Steel. More »

UK Paragliding 2014 XC Season Summary

After what seemed like an 'endless summer' in the United Kingdom, the paragliding cross country flying season appears to have finally come to a somewhat unwelcome end for 2014 - and what a hugely eventful year it proved to be! However, just because it's warmer than usual doesn't necessarily mean it's better for XC flying. So what kind of year was it for flying XC on paragliders in the UK - not just the few 'Sky Gods' but the many 'mere mortals' too? One of the best ways to gauge this is by looking that the UK Paragliding XC League, and hearing from the pilots, of all levels, who took part. More »
